Quick Fix: Make Firefox use KMail for mailto: links

A small annoyance of using Firefox in Kubuntu is that it always tries to load Evolution each time you click on a mailto: link. Here’s a quick fix for that:

  1. Enter about:config in a new tab in Firefox.
  2. Right click > New > String.
  3. Enter the preference name: network.protocol-handler.app.mailto
  4. Enter the preference value: /usr/bin/kmail

Note: You may have KMail installed at a different location. Type which kmail in a terminal window to find out exactly where it is.
